Missing change

Missing. One Obama sign. Lost since between 2-5pm, October 10th, 2008. If found, please return.

Seriously. This afternoon, after a nice family trip to the Apple Orchard, we returned home to find our Obama sign missing. The space between the Bill Thompson sign and the Susy Blake sign, where our Obama sign once stood, is now empty.

At first I was upset. This was the second time an Obama sign had been taken (the first time we brushed off since, after all, we had two of them in our yard). I was ready to yell at them kids to get off’n our yard!

Then I looked down the block. I turned and looked down another. Kerrie hopped on her bike and took a swing around the neighborhood.

They are all gone.

All of the Obama signs in our little area west of McKennan park. Gone.

All (two) of the McCain stands still remain, as do all of the state house and senate candidates. But the Obama signs, of which there were several, are all gone.

Is this just a bunch of kids walking home from school at Patrick Henry Middle School thinking they’re putting us on?

Or is this a really desperate move by some McCain backer?

Who knows. All I know is that my Obama sign is gone.

And surprisingly, I don’t think it’s going to change much.
